Not a Tamale
This is not a tamale. I don’t care what the menu said, this is not a tamale. It looks more like cat food. And believe me, it sure didn’t taste like chicken.
Lesson #1: When a restaurant specializes in Empanadas to the point where it’s in the name, don’t try anything else on the menu. Stick with the empanadas.
Lesson #2: Don’t eat it. It’s not worth wasting the perfectly good hot sauce on.
Needless to say, I cannot recommend anything from Empanada Mama except the empanada’s (which are still excellent).
